ESCB work experience

The ESCB External Work Experience Scheme promotes and strengthens the exchange of staff between central banks in the ESCB through the secondment of staff members on a temporary basis (three to 11 months). 

The work experience has the following strategic objectives:

  1. to contribute to the development of  a shared identity and system culture, whilst building more intensive cooperation within the ESCB;
  2. to facilitate increased intrasystem contact and networking opportunities between  central banks;
  3. to raise awareness and build knowledge of the different structures and working methods at the participating National Central Bank and/or at the European Central Bank.
